shellder - Minimal theme with git branch display. Requires a Powerline-compatible font.

UNMAINTAINED: I don't use MSYS2 anymore so I don't maintain this project anymore. If you want to use shellder, consider the alternatives below:

  1. powerlevel10k
    • Lowest latency. Utilizes async tasks and gitstatusd.
    • Only for ZSH
    • Not suits with MSYS2 or Cygwin since it's a big shell scripts. (But who uses MSYS2/Cygwin while we have WSL2?)
  2. starship
    • Higher latency than powerlevel10k, but still it's faster than most shell themes.
    • Compatible with many shell environments (i.e. Powershell, bash, tcsh, fish, ...)
    • No slowdown in MSYS2 or Cygwin since it's a Rust binary not a shell script.

 


 

shellder

  1. No solarized ― xterm256 colors are beautiful enough
  2. zsh + fish support
  3. Speed ― Carefully optimized for slow environments like MSYS2

Installation

You can install shellder via various plugin managers.

Zsh, zinit

# ~/.zshrc
zinit light simnalamburt/shellder

Fish, chips

# ~/.config/chips/plugin.yaml
github:
- simnalamburt/shellder

Fish, oh-my-fish

# ~/.config/chips/plugin.yaml
github:
- simnalamburt/shellder

 

Configuration

You can turn off Fish-like path shrinking by adding the following to your ~/.zshrc:

# ~/.zshrc
export SHELLDER_KEEP_PATH=1

 

Fonts

You'll need a powerline patched font. If you don't have one, download one or patch some fonts on you own.
